After church yesterday I had a mini-meltdown. I just needed some face time with my man. So, I used some of my personal spending money (Dave Ramsey would be so proud) and invited my husband out to lunch (if I eat at home I will be distracted by all that needs to be done).
We talked about the day’s sermon (a very challenging one about humility and being salt/light) and a number of other things, but then my husband asked me, “What do you need to get done this week?” It was an interesting question because it helped me narrow down on the “have to’s” and the “important stuff.” We ended up each sharing about our weekly to-do lists. It helped us focus and we now know how to pray and be a help. We can encourage each other and be a sounding board as we move through the week.
Why not ask your sweetie the same question and spend some time encouraging each other and being helpful where you can.
